Cree royal blue LED delivers 81% wall plug efficiency

Cree has announced the XLamp XP-G3 Royal Blue LED that the company claims to be the highest performing royal blue LED on the market. Cree said that the new LED delivers wall plug efficiency as high as 81% although the conditions for that performance level were not specified. Cree is specifically targeting horticultural solid-state lighting (SSL) applications with the new product and also believes that the LED is a good fit in general for RGB (red, green, and blue) luminaires in entertainment and architectural or façade applications.

Cree has made a strong push into the horticultural space of late where blue and red LEDs are used to match the chlorophyll absorption peaks in plants, as we have described in several feature articles including the most recent article last fall.  Cree had released what it calls a Photo Red LED at boosted performance levels back in October of 2016.
